§ 51. Mr. Granville Sharp
asked the Minister of Defence. to what extent the Inter-Services Committee, in considering future requirements of training areas, are informed of the amount and types of training to be carried out; and when this information will be made fully available so as to permit the speedy release of land required for other purposes.
§ Mr. Alexander
Full information about the training requirements in each area is supplied to the Inter-Departmental Committee. The work of the Committee is proceeding as rapidly as possible. In the meantime, any land found surplus to requirements is released at the earliest possible moment. There has been unavoidable delay in some cases due to the necessity for clearance of unexploded missiles.
